Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight movie; faithful to the graphic novels?...



Okay, this may sound outdated/passe/so-last-month....but does anybody notice that The Dark Knight movie derived most of its' influences from several Batman comics/graphic novels....namely The Long Halloween, The Killing Joke and Batman: Year One?! Being an ardent comic fan myself, I was surprised (and somewhat thrilled!) on how the movie closely resembled the comic elements so much and how it stayed faithful to the mood set out in those graphic novels.
Kudos to Christopher Nolan for succesfully adapting the dark (hence the Title Dark Knight! heheh...) intonation of the stories told by great writers i.e. Jeph Loeb, Alan Moore & Frank Miller; onto the big screen. Though I must say most fans keep asking themselves, "Where the heck did the character Rachel Dawes come from?!!". Personally, after the excellent Dark Knight movie, I'm looking forward to the next on-screen graphic novel adaptation......The Watchmen, directed by Zack Snyder....due to be out by March 2009; that is IF the legal dispute between 20th Century Fox over Warner Bros is resolved by then. Or else, we may never get to see it......darn!
